The UCB (Upright Citizens Brigade) Theater’s East Village, NYC location may have closed this past February, but the colorful mural by local hotshot street artist Kenny Scharf lives on across its now permanently-shuttered security gate! See it for yourself on your next Urban Art Safari at 155 East 3rd Street between Avenues A and B.

Frank Ape Goes Punk for Lucky Bar Security Gate Mural

An added upside to taking a walk around the neighborhood on a holiday is that a lot of businesses are closed, so you get a chance to check out all of sweet street art on security gates that are rolled up much of  the time. While I could not find a tag on this piece, which adorns the security gate for the Lucky Bar on Avenue B, it sure does look like a mohawk-sporting Punk Rocker version of Frank Ape, by the artist Brandon Sines.

Lucky Bar is located at 168 Avenue B, East Village, NYC.

For the first time in a while, I can’t  even guess who created this image of what looks like a face wrapped  in  a Pink Bunny hoody, brandishing a dagger, which I spotted on the security gate of Globe Slicers, located at 266 Bowery. Leave any guesses in the comments, please!

This Store Goes to Eleven

Photographer Glen Scot, who lives in the UK, snapped this photo of a Guitar shop storefront that quite literally advertises what they sell. Brilliant! And the pots go to Eleven!
